In springtime, the most effective element of crop nutrition is nitrogen. We prepare an effective and cost-efficient range of nitrogen solutions for top dressing, including our own unique nitrogen-sulphur formula.

BFS NitroSulph
 Due to reduced industrial emissions, sulphur has become increasingly essential, particularly on sandy and chalky soils. BFS NitroSulph products, which combine sulphur and nitrogen, will provide all the sulphur the crop needs, and more. 

Key to BFS NitroSulph's greater potency are both the higher sulphur content in our own exclusive BFS formula, and our skill in preparing bespoke solutions at our Ilgars plant to meet each farm's own crop specific requirements. The result means lower application rates saving both time and labour.

From 1 April 2024, new industry standards aimed at reducing ammonia emissions to the atmosphere require inhibitors to be added to liquid and solid urea products. The new BFS NitroSulph formula contains these inhibitors so you do not need to add anything else. Check the new industry rules here. Trials have shown that the inhibitors in NitroSulph are environmentally-friendly and they do not have a negative impact on soil biology, unlike many others currently available. The chart below shows NitroSulph's greater efficacy compared with other environmentally-friendly inhibitors widely available for liquid fertilisers.

BFS Nitrogen Fertiliser Liquid nitrogen fertilisers are based on UAN (urea and ammonium nitrate) solutions, which are dual-acting. The ammonium nitrate is immediately available to the crop, while the urea is released more slowly. Nutrients are therefore available to the crop over a longer period than if treated with either urea or ammonium nitrate alone.

In its fluid form, urea is also less prone to volatilisation, important in dry, warm periods and on chalky soil types.

Although we mix nitrogen solutions to farmers' individual requirements, we also offer a wide standard range of 'off the shelf' solutions, including the more popular nitrogen 28N and nitrogen 30N formulae.

BFS 'Nhanced Nitrogen consumes carbon. So the more you apply, the greater the risk of soil degeneration. To help balance carbon and nitrogen levels in the soil, BFS has developed its own Nitrogen 'Nhanced solution, by adding a high carbohydrate source to the liquid nitrogen. This helps maintain the C:N ratio, protecting the soil for the long term.

For customers preferring a nitrogen and sulphur mixture, we have also developed NitroSulph 'Nhanced, which includes a carbon source to help prevent the degeneration of the soil.

Try complementing our nitrogen fertilisers with our PolyNPlus foliar fertiliser range which, during the later stages of the growing season, is an effective replacement for soil-applied nitrogen.
